Litter control

‌Leaving or throwing litter in a public place is an offence which can be subject to an "on the spot fine" of €150 and maximum fine of €3,000 on conviction in the District Court. A person convicted of a litter offence may be required by the Court to pay the Council's costs and expenses in investigating the offence and in bringing the prosecution.
